    In awe…

    In skydiving we are sometimes graced with nicknames.  I narrowly avoided ‘flares’.  We have “red” “stretch” “chocolate” “mudmonkey” “juicbox” “flying lesbian” and a bunch others. I get teased for the twisted leg strap incident. While at the dropzone yesterday I had Ed have Lester put on a rig and see if he would twist the leg straps.  Ed helped him put it on  and from all the times he’s watched me tighten my leg straps he looked like a pro.  I was standing there with the camera going, ‘damn…that’s hot.’.   Then Ed took off the rig, placed it on the chair and said, “Okay, now put it on yourself.”…
